    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    That's a nice little routine Elmer. I guess I could use something along these lines Windows shutdown script. to link that so that it runs every time a shutdown is done. Suh-weet! That's a great tip Doesn't look complicated at all. @Firecracker, yep I occasionally use iTunes. I have...

    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    I've been around the block a few times :wink:, but that doesn't mean I won't take help from a forum friend! I've covered the list except for the temp files. I'll give that a try. Funny thing about that Bounjour service. I've disabled it more than once. I haven't looked at it long enough to...

    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    The Registry already had this set correctly, but I ran it anyway. I do have a bunch of stuff running, but there's been no change to this (both programs and services) for months, well before this started happening. And I'm convinced now this has to be related to a program that I run after Win7...

    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    Hmm. This option is not Enabled. So there is something else that is slowing down Shutdown in my case.

    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    Joe, no automatic backup running. Running AVG9 which I have running in the same configuration on other Win7 and Win XP disks. Neither of those (in the same system) show long shutdown times. Thanks Elmer. I'll check this when I'm back at the machine. Any idea how this could have been set, if...

    Recent issue - long shutdown time

    I've read about this but never experienced it until the last several weeks. I am seeing very long shutdown times on my Win7 x64 Ultimate system. I'm not quite sure when it started because I rarely reboot and my system is on 24/7 (gotta say I love the stability!). I saw one thread where someone...

    Which add-ins are really necessary for Outlook 2007?

    Hi Drew. I could not find an Add-in Manager under either Tools or Help, so I went into the Trust Center again and took a closer look at each add-in. The only ones that did not have a path to MS Office or Windows\system were the Adobe add-in (which in fact is associated with Creative Suite 3) and...

    Which add-ins are really necessary for Outlook 2007?

    I was having "data file could not be read" problems all of a sudden when I started Outlook 2007 (started today). Running scanpst found errors are made fixes, but did not solve the problem. Doing a search revealed that some people had good luck removing or disabling add-ins which were not...

    What's causing heavy disk activity on USB drive?

    No, I checked that too. I can't figure out what's making this happen. Just to see for sure I booted back into Win XP Pro (I swapped boot disks in BIOS) and sure enough when the system went into monitor off idle state the USB drive just sat there. No disk activity.

    What's causing heavy disk activity on USB drive?

    I checked the configuration of that stuff, even turned off AV. I don't think it's that. I'm wondering if it's because I added that disc to WMP12 (it does contain a lot of media and I added it to the Library).

    What's causing heavy disk activity on USB drive?

    Running 64-bit version. I'm not sure if this was happening before, but today I noticed that when the system is in its monitor off mode (I have it set to go after 20 minutes of non-use) the activity light on my USB drive will be blinking like crazy. Moments after I move the mouse to get back into...

    Sudden hanging on "Starting Windows" screen

    Thanks for the suggestion Reg, but it turned out to be me not getting all the BIOS settings reset properly after the BIOS upgrade. Once I got everything set to where it was in the previous BIOS version everything was fine.

    Windows 7 - Solutions for boot problems.

    I took a look at the website. It says the free version does not have full 64 bit support. Does that mean it shouldn't be used in Win 7/64?

    Sudden hanging on "Starting Windows" screen

    I had to upgrade the BIOS of my board in order the get back Virtualization (for some reason it wasn't showing up with the version I was using, that was a known problem). I did the upgrade after the Win 7 clean install on a new drive. Now I am geting random hangs on the "Starting Windows" screen...

    Any Win7 alternate driver for Epson 1640SU?

    Scanner, that is. The old one won't install and the 1640SU aapears not to be on the Windows 7 list of devices.

    Codecs

    Could you provide a direct link to this? I visited the page and when I clicked on the Download link on the 64 bit Codec Pack page it took me to another site. When I selected its DL link it just gave me a FFDSHOW file.

    Windows 7 Games that Work and Games that Don't.

    Yeah it's ancient but System Shock 2 is a great game (as was the original). I tried re-installing it and got the "DX6.1 Limitation" alert. Install aborted. The weird thing is that I tried running the game within Win7 from my previous XP Pro installation (my XP disk is still connected) and the...

    Best driver for Symbios LSI 53C810?

    I successfully installed Win7 Ultimate 64 bit on a new drive which is in my workhorse PC. I have only a couple of open driver issues. One is for my SCSI adapter (which I still need). I went to the Symbios site and was not surprised to see that there are no new drivers for this device. They have...
